Open Bidding is a trading method to make coins in FIFA21 and it is a really simple method where you bid on one particular card or a group of cards based on certain criteria.
The easiest way to do this is via companion app using the free (yes, free) FUTSTARZ toolbar chrome extension.
Enter your filter or search for an individual player first of all with the max bid at a level where it will give you
- a minimum of 500 coins profit for cards under 5k or
- at least 1k profit for cards above 5k.
( you can check this using the inbuilt tax calculator included in the FUTSTARZ toolbar extension)
Simply search and press Bid on the highlighted card and then use the arrow down key to navigate to the next card and press bid again
Monitor these cards and make sure to up you bid all the way until the price you could sell for no longer returns 500 coins in profit for 5k or less cards or 1k profit for cards over 5k.
You can do this at any time on any player but its most effective when the players are in demand , this can be because of links they offer to new special cards, limited time SBCs such as marquee matchups or cards which are required for objectives.
Its also amazing during lightning rounds as so many packs are opened there is a huge number of cards that people list at minimum start price.
In terms of the best times to do this Sundays during squad battle rewards and Thursdays during rewards is great as well (check our weekly schedule article for times). If executed well and especially during lightning pack rounds, Open Bidding is a reliable method to make coins in FIFA 21
